Despite the recent backlog of vehicles at customs posts, China was still the largest consumer of Vietnamese fruit and vegetables in 2021.
Lộc Trời Group (LTG) has announced that it completed the export of one final batch of rice this year to Europe, including 4,170 tonnes of jasmine and white rice.
Vietnamese businesses are struggling to fulfil export orders as the COVID-19 outbreak hinders purchase of raw materials and production, and are at risk of losing customers.
Việt Nam is expected to achieve its rice export target of 6.3 million tonnes worth US$3.2 billion this year due to high global demand and an increase in export prices.
Rice businesses in the South are again able to ship through HCM City’s Cát Lát Port after a month’s stoppage due to a pileup of containers after many consignees suspended business due to COVID-19.
